Re: Firearms Chat.....Sans catchy title

Re: Ultimate ZS Battle/Scout Belt Thread

Cut your ammo load out in half for the rife and pistol. You will have plenty of room left without having mags on the "strong" side any mags between the 1-7 if you are right handed would be too far for any fast reload. It will also let you place everything in a better position and cut weight. Just IM...

Re: More Fucking Glock problems- Trigger Safety broken

Why bother, get a good 1911 there is a good reason it has been in front line service for 100 years. I have not had to replace any springs or had any failures in any of my 1911s. Round count on your most used 1911? Colt Mk1V Series 70 purchased 1980 approx 23,000 Colt 38 super manufactured 1931 owne...

Re: Ultimate ZS Battle/Scout Belt Thread

I was thinking of running 4 AR and 4 pistol mags, knife, blow out kit,canteen and holster... Are 8 mags too heavy with the HSGI belt? Unless your running 20 round .45 ACP mags I dont see a weight issue. How do you plan on getting ALL of that on belt though were you can get to it and not get in the ...

Re: ACOG Advice

Yes you can use the ACOG to range a target since the horizontal marks are the same width of an average torso at a given distance. Just like you can do with mil dots just with out all the math. While not as accurate as mils it's close enough for government work. Couldn't have said it better. The pro...

My preferred technique is done in a super compressed high ready with the pistol as close to my chest as possible to prevent moving the slide enough to eject a round or cause a malfunction.

Re: Accepting constructive criticism at the range?

Since we have derailed the tread already.

Doc I would love to hear your ideas on why a press check of some sort is not part of a administrative load / ammo management strategy on the range.

One of the techniques I like on a classic muzzle grab with a team backing you up is to drop to a low kneeling position or flat on your ass which brings changes the angle of the weapon into the upper torso of the grabber also allowing for anyone behind you to engage the target. It's taught in some we...
